Will UK trademark work in the US?

Hi all,

I have a company in the UK, now I want to sell my products in the US Market. How should I apply for trademark? Can I submit my trademark in the UK, and use it to sell products in the US market place?

Thank you


A UK trademark does not apply to overseas territories, including the United States. Trademarks are generally country-specific, so a UK registration only provides protection in the UK.

If you want to use your trademark in countries other than the UK, you can apply to the trademark office in each country. There are also European and international application systems that cover many countries.

How should I apply for trademark?

LegalZoom has handled all of company’s filings. They are currently working on our Trademark.


No, the reason trademarks are filed in different jurisdictions is to grant you the ability to enforce them only within those regions. Each territory has distinct standards and requirements, and a UK trademark would be of no use in the US, including for the purposes of Amazon Brand Registry.
